Good to know that'll finally fall into line. Now if only major retailers would actually stock there stuff regularily. Hopefully they'll be able to work things out in the new year.

Did this only apply to major retailers or did it also include specialty shops too? Didn't really notice since I'm not collecting either of those titles at the moment or any Bandai titles for that matter.

I think it mainly applied to major retailers, because if I am correct most smaller specialty shops had suppliers in the United States. But I also never really notice or cared about the delay.

It applies to both specialty and mainstream retailers. Paradox Entertainment supplies to both, as it seems that Bandai actively tries to keep companies from getting their products from US sources.

For the better, I say.

Good job Bandai, now how about releasing that Gundam SEED boxset somewhere in the not-so distant future (after GSD is finished)? You know people love that show up here! Smile

Yeah, they'd need to look into going as far as getting something like that advertised on TV up here. It would be a huge seller, and I'd hate to see it get turned away by retailers for no reason.

I'm also keeping my fingers crossed for thinpaks!
